PURCHASE TICKETS
Norwich Jazz Club are proud to be included in Phil Robson's 12-date tour of the UK over May and June this year; so a great chance to catch one of the most driving and inventive trios around who'll be returning to our club for the first time since 2014!

Award-winning, versatile and creative guitarist / composer Phil Robson joins forces with Hammond virtuoso Ross Stanley and the powerful and inspiring drummer Gene Calderazzo in this all-star band. Influenced by such legends as Pat Martino, Wes Montgomery and John McLaughlin, but also with a heavier rock-grooving predilection and energy, this tight team add their own refreshing touch to the organ trio tradition. Performing new tunes alongside existing favourites from their album “The Cut Off Point”, expect powerful melodies, grooves and burning improv from three top musicians with an incredible rapport.

You can check out tracks from the album here.

Norwich Jazz Club are excited to welcome Resolution 88 back to Norwich, coinciding with the launch of the band's 4th studio album; "Vortex."

One of the UK’s leading exponents of funk jazz, Resolution 88's music is synonymous with the beautiful tones of the Fender Rhodes and fuses the sound of the modern London jazz scene with the inspirational greats of the 70’s such as Herbie Hancock’s Head Hunters and the classic Mizell Brothers productions. They've brought their high energy performances to a range of prestigious venues and festivals around the UK and Europe, including live shows supporting Snarky Puppy, Roy Ayers, Marcus Miller, Stanley Clarke, Larry Mizell & the Blackbyrds, Butcher Brown, the Yellowjackets and many more.

For their new album 'Vortex', bandleader and composer Tom O’Grady went all-out to recreate the sound world from his favourite Mizell Brothers productions and Herbie Hancock records; everything you hear on this album, from the Mellotron to the Echoplex, from the Oberheim 4 Voice to the glockenspiel - is the real thing.

The artwork was beautifully painted by Tokio Aoyama - inspired by the title track ‘Vortex’ - and as an homage to the works of other Japanese artists such as Nobuhiro Nakanishi who painted the cover of Herbie Hancock’s live album ‘Flood’.

Alice and the trio take you on a colourful journey into the Brazilian Songbook, performing popular hits such as ‘Agua de beber’, ‘Insensatez’ and ‘Triste’ alongside hidden gems such as ‘Olha pro Ceu’ and ‘Vida bela’ (written by a young Tom Jobim before going on to be regarded as the father of Bossanova).

Delving into Musica Populàr Brasilera (MPB) they’ll perform stylish and unexplored songs from national icon Fatima Guedes (‘Flor de Ir embora’, 'Meninas da cidade') as well as from global stars Gilberto Gil and Elis Regina ('Madalena’, ‘Ladera da Preguiça’, ‘Marambaia').

A versatile, multi-lingual singer and trained classical pianist, Alice spent time in Floranopolis and Rio immersed in Bossanova and Musica Populàr Brasilera - cementing a life-long love of Brazilian music - before moving to settle in the UK, where since 2005 she’s worked as a recording artist and performer, appearing at top music venues such as Ronnie Scotts, Café Zedel and Guanabara.
